whether I am talking on love or on meditation, you will be fulfilled. Your own path will be strengthened….OSHO
IN A RECENT LECTURE YOU WERE SAYING,'ON THE PATH OF LOVE, FORGET ALL ABOUT MEDITATION; ON THE PATH OF MEDITATION, FORGET ALL ABOUT LOVE.' I BELIEVE MYSELF TO BE RATHER ON THE PATH OF MEDITATION, AND WHAT YOU ARE SAYING NOW ABOUT THE INDISPENSABLE VALUE OF LOVE IS CONFUSING TO ME. I UNDERSTAND THAT SPEAKING OF THE BAULS YOU HAVE BECOME A BAUL, AND ARE FULLY IN THE PATH OF LOVE. HOW SHOULD I THEN HEAR THOSE LECTURES? AND WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF LOVE, EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS ON THE PATH OF MEDITATION?
IF I am talking about the Bauls and love and devotion and prayer, and you are on the path of meditation, listen to me meditatively, that's all. Just listen to me meditatively; then you will be growing in meditation through listening.
Don't listen through the intellect. There is no need because you are on the path of meditation, so you need not worry about the details of what I am saying. You can listen very silently without being at all worried about what I am saying, what the details are. You can simply listen in deep meditation.
Let listening be your meditation, and that will do. But if you listen from the intellect that will create confusion. If I am talking on the path of meditation and you are on the path of love, listen to me lovingly.
You don't lose track of your path. And then, whether I am talking on love or on meditation, you will be fulfilled. Your own path will be strengthened. Your will will be made stronger.?
